Sexiest Man Alive 2013

I wish they would choose Fassy or Henry Cavill, but knowing People it will probably be someone like Liam Hemsworth.

by Anonymousreply 9202/18/2014

I'd pick Hemsworth over either of those two. Cavill is going to age like a Brit, you can already tell. The other one is too old already, in my book.

Shemar Moore, over 40, yet amazing body, beautiful smile and eyes and seems easy going guy.

Who has a big movie coming out?

by Anonymousreply 409/16/2013

Nobody relevant will accept it. Channing Tatum shouldn't have. Everyone knows this title is meaningless and PR based, no need in the era of internet gossip.

by Anonymousreply 509/16/2013

It's about who the editorial staff of People decide it is. Who ever can sell magazines for them, or, if not up their circulation, at least buy the advertising they need to finish in the black.

So,include the studios and the publicists and the agencies who also help decide. Sometimes. Those who have clout. LOTS of clout. Of course it would have to be topical, but as I understand it, the person they select has to agree to do some promotion for it, and go on a few talk shows. it's pretty embarrassing shit.

It's such an insider type decision that it has lost credibility. Other magazines who copycat People do a better job. At least they pretend to take polls. It stinks. It is not what it was when it first started out. I think mostly it's about who can sell the magazine.

I think it will be Liam Hemsworth, good call OP.

by Anonymousreply 709/16/2013

I wouldn't be surprised if it's someone like Leonardo DiCaprio. He has a big film coming out, he has fans all over the globe. He was overlooked when he was younger, but now that he's hitting 40, it wouldn't be an odd choice.

by Anonymousreply 809/16/2013

I guess they can't award it posthumously to Cory Monteith.

by Anonymousreply 909/16/2013

Chris Hemsworth has a big new movie. Recent polling on DL shows Chris is twice as lusted for as Liam.

by Anonymousreply 1009/16/2013

They gave Liam Hemsworth "Paranoia" and even cast a bunch of big names around him and he completely failed, the reviews against him were scathing. He isn't going to get it.

Chris Hemsworth is doing great in the business and he goes have that Ryan Howard movie "Rush" to push. He is a pretty decent bet.

by Anonymousreply 1109/16/2013

Liam also has the next Thor movie coming out next year.

by Anonymousreply 1209/16/2013

Liam isn't really known.. he was barely in Hunger Games.

Whereas Chris Hemsworth has been in everything for the past 2 years, all sorts of blockbusters and now getting respect in that well reviewed Rush movie.

In short, Chris is one of the chosen ones for whatever reason (and actually delivering unlike Alex Pettyfer). Liam is known more for who his brother is and Miley Cyrus. So him being in Paranoia was too much too soon without a build up.

by Anonymousreply 1309/16/2013

Thor comes out in November....the same month as The Sexiest Man Alive issue. Do the math.

by Anonymousreply 1409/16/2013

I agree with r5 - doesn't the actor have to agree to a pictorial/interview? That's why it went to Bradley Cooper and not Ryan Gosling a couple of years ago. Ryan was smart enough to say no.

I am also going to say no.

I love DL's Joe Manganiello impersonators. Good job!

by Anonymousreply 1709/16/2013

Liam is too young for People magazine to choose him. Recipients of this "honor" are almost always over 30. In fact Chris barely qualifies as he is only 30 himself.

I agree with R4. It will be someone with a movie to promote as the studio will likely buy the award this year.

Fassy has two big movies coming out this season, so he might want to play the PR game.

by Anonymousreply 2309/16/2013

People usually veers Middle American (at least in looks) and mainstream. I think Fassy is a little too edgy for that crowd and he may not even want it.

It will be somebody boring, like Chris Hemsworth or Ben Affleck.

What about Charlie Hunnam, the studio needs to hype him for 50 Shades and SOA plays well with the flyovers.

Thse people talking aabout actors not wanting the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE title is so full of BULLSHIT.

by Anonymousreply 2609/16/2013

R8 (Mia) Leo would not accept it.

He has fought fiercely in the past against this 'hunk of the month for the screaming twins' image, he won't relent now. Especially not when a serious movie is coming. That would jeopardize his chances for a nomination.

Well, he won't get nominated anyway, but if he accepted to grace the front page of People's Sexiest Man Alive, he would purposfully throw away his chance.

by Anonymousreply 2709/16/2013

[quote]Cavill is going to age like a Brit, you can already tell.

Bullshit. What can you already tell? I've yet to see a bad picture of this guy.

by Anonymousreply 2809/16/2013

I hate even having to type this crap up, but Justin Timberlake is probably in the running. He's got that movie (that already looks like a flop) with Ben Affleck coming up, plus the second part of this album, and he's got a part in the anticipated Coen Bros movie coming out in December.

by Anonymousreply 2909/16/2013

I think they will pick Matt Bomer

by Anonymousreply 3009/16/2013

Fassy or Cavill? AKA a woman beater or closet case? Great choices.

I would pick Matt Bomer. When is The Normal Heart coming out?

I agree. Why would anyone not want this?

Has any non-white person ever won this? Denzel I suppose, but it's really shocking and sickening that we're in 2013 and there's still so little diversity, everything whitebread and that's with two terms of a black president.

It's a big year for black cinema and you have that Indian American girl winning Miss America, so maybe there will be some slow subtle changes.

by Anonymousreply 3409/16/2013

Fassbender would be a great candidate with two films out this fall, but I think he's too serious of an actor for People's taste. Cavill would be a fantastic choice. Superman was a big hit, and he's filming Man from UNCLE right now.

If it's not either one of these guys, the selection will pale in comparison.

by Anonymousreply 3509/16/2013

Shamelessly lobbying by appearing shirtless at every opportunity, surely Vladimir Putin has to be considered a contender.

Yeah R34, but could they put in there? Idris Elba? chiwetel ejiofor? 90% of America would go "who?"

What man of color is sexy and also is famous and/or has a lot of heat on him right now? It's slim pickings.

May your hands fall off before you can type another letter, R42.

by Anonymousreply 4409/16/2013

Bomer would be great. A gay sexiest man alive. How times will have changed.

by Anonymousreply 4509/16/2013

Bomer would be a great choice as the first Gay Sexiest Man Alive, but I think there are still some narrow-minded readers who would not be happy with him getting the cover. I also don't think that Bomer is as well-known internationally as past cover boys.

I think Fassbender or Cumberbatch will get it. They both have huge fan bases globally and several films coming out in the next few months.

by Anonymousreply 4610/22/2013

Is there really any doubt it'll be Cavill?

by Anonymousreply 4710/22/2013

I like R40's idea, but the real "Sexiest Man Alive 2013" is Steven R. McQueen.

Has Zac ever won this?

R48, one doesn't win this: one is named.

by Anonymousreply 4910/22/2013

WhatEVER, R49.

by Anonymousreply 5010/22/2013

Cavill has two big Warner Bros films coming out so he'd be a prime candidate, if he'd agree to it. Remember Ryan Reynolds was chosen because he was starring in WB's Green Lantern.

by Anonymousreply 5110/22/2013

Probably will be Cavill. I think Fassbender and Cumberbatch are both on the cusp of being general pop culture fodder, rather than actively a part of it. Sexiest Man Alive is usually given to someone already established, rather than someone truly rising. Say what you want about MOS and Cavill, but most everyone is aware of him now.

Chris Hemsworth would make sense too, though.

[quote]Cavill has two big Warner Bros films coming out so he'd be a prime candidate, if he'd agree to it.

If he'd agree to it? He'd jump at it. After that Cuoco thing, pretty clear the guy wants fame on a global scale, but at least him being chosen would aesthetically make sense because he's gorgeous.

by Anonymousreply 5710/22/2013

It's going to be somebody who has a movie coming out around the time of the issue.

Michael Fassbender in The Counselor (October 25) [Also in 12 Years a Slave]

Chris Hemsworth in Thor (November 8)

Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street (November 15)

Idris Elba in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (November 29)

Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club (December 6) [Also in The Wolf of Wall Street]

Christian Bale in Out of the Furnace (December 6) and American Hustle (December 13)

by Anonymousreply 5810/22/2013

Most of those guys are serious actors and probably don't want it (and probably have been offered it before).

Hemsworth is cheesy enough to need it.

by Anonymousreply 5910/22/2013

Please not a Hemsworth. They're so generic-looking, it's hard to believe they weren't spit out of a computer.

Casey Affleck is also in Out of the Furnace. I'd sooner see him "named" (thanks R49--I owe you one) over most of the names I'm reading here today. TBT, I'd rather see Casey Affleck in anything than his talent-free brother.

by Anonymousreply 6010/22/2013

I also think that Chris Hemsworth is at the top of the list of contenders. He's well established now in both blockbusters and serious fare. Fassbender, though truly one of THE sexiest in the industry, is too controversial an actor and lacks mainstream appeal. Cavill may have the success of MOS behind him, but he doesn't have the name recognition. I think a lot of people just refer to him as the guy who played Superman. For some reason, I think Idris Elba is at the top of the list also. He's been on the cover of quite a few major publications. He's done Pacific Rim, Thor 2 and has the Mandela movie coming out. Sorry but I don't think that Joe Manganiello has a snowball's chance in hell this year. His career has just stalled. I doubt he'll even be featured inside it.

I hope it's Obama just to piss off people.

Let's also keep in mind that sexy and handsome don't always go hand-in-hand.

Like usual, they will choose someone who appeals to a wider demographic, that is certainly not the self-indulge "I say him because it makes me feel/seem badass" choices like Idris Elba or Fassbender.

R63: "Idris Elba because It's Time"

Is It's Time a film he's in?

Eeeewwww to Hemsworth. He looks like an albino gorilla with is beady eyes and flaring nostrils. Plus he has skinny legs.

by Anonymousreply 6810/23/2013

There is no obvious choice as it has been these last few years. Channing Tatum was having a good year last year. Bradley Cooper was popular the year before (moreso Ryan Gosling, who it's been said had turned it down)

They may just play it safe and choose a popular previous winner for a second time:

Hugh Jackman?

Johnny Depp?

Matt Damon?

Ben Affleck?

by Anonymousreply 6910/23/2013

Danny Pino and his thick, spicy wedge of Cuban pinga with tight foreskin.

by Anonymousreply 7010/23/2013

R69, I though that the winner not only has to be popular but also have very recent career success. Jackman, Depp and Damon have all flopped at the summer box office and Affleck is one of the least popular actors in the industry right about now.

by Anonymousreply 7110/23/2013

Does it have to be an actor?

I can only think of two entertainers, who have worldwide appeal and also had a good year career-wise:

Jake Gyllenhaal Justin Timberlake

by Anonymousreply 7811/14/2013

I wonder if that link is foreshadowing [bold]Nick Jonas[/bold]' selection as 2013's Sexiest Man.

I could see it going to [bold]Zac Efron[/bold] or [bold]Jon Hamm[/bold], as well. Or a CBMS (Comic Book Movie Star) could grab it.

by Anonymousreply 7911/14/2013

Jon Hamm is a good guess. And older actors fit People's demographic. But they never choose TV actors.

Zac Efron is too young.

I think it will be Cavill because he has a big Warner Bros movie to headline next year, Man from UNCLE, and the studio will want to build awareness of him. The same thing happened with Ryan Reynolds when he was chosen prior to a Green Lantern's release.

by Anonymousreply 8011/14/2013

Yes R76, but aren't these things decided way in advance?

I would be shocked if it was Jon Hamm. For all the online fuss about him, Mad Men isn't exactly a ratings bonanza.

by Anonymousreply 8111/14/2013

Timberlake wouldn't have been chosen after the Runner Runner debacle.

by Anonymousreply 8211/14/2013

r80, back in the 80s, they did choose 2 TV actors: Mark Harmon and Harry Hamlin. Since then, however, with the exception of JFK Jr., it's been all movie stars.

GossipCop is claiming it's going to be Adam Levine. They broke the news last year that it would be Channing Tatum.

by Anonymousreply 8411/14/2013

If it's Levine I can only imagine that he must have been way down on the list of people they offered it to, and everybody else above him turned it down.

I think the People magazine demographic would find him icky.
